As top Ukrainian officials were accusing Russia of invading their country on Friday, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin reminded the press that derided her has a neophyte during the 2008 presidential campaign that she had accurately predicted an Obama presidency could lead to Russia’s invasion of its neighboring country.
"Yes, I could see this one from Alaska. I’m usually not one to Told-Ya-So, but I did, despite my accurate prediction being derided as ‘an extremely far-fetched scenario’ by the ‘high-brow’ Foreign Policy magazine," Palin wrote in a Facebook post on Friday. Palin was resoundingly mocked by comedians like Tina Fey and eggheads for saying in 2008 that Alaska’s proximity to Russia forced her to deal with foreign policy issues just like George W. Bush said thatTexas’s proximity to Mexico compelled him to deal with Mexico when he was governor of Texas.
